Namco Bandai

Soul Calibur II – Second Opinion

Boxing is often called the "sweet science." The strategy, execution and skill make up the "science" and I'm assuming the thrill and satisfaction of victory is what makes it "sweet." In Soul Calibur III, I feel there's very little "science" that goes into the combat and consequently, victory isn't particularly "sweet."

Tekken 4 – Second Opinion

With each new Tekken that comes out, I tell myself I've had enough, that I've already played these games way too much, but Namco has always pulled me back in with new characters, new mechanics, or even new graphics that make it a fresh experience. This just wasn't the case with Tekken 4.

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht – Review

If Xenosaga is any indication, then Japanese game developers aren't yet ready to end their tawdry love affair with the cinematic effects pioneered in games like Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil. Rather, they seem to love these effects more than ever.

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Xenosaga: Episode I—Der Wille zur Macht

Game Description: Thousands of years into the future, humanity exists only in deep space, facing an uncertain destiny as it unlocks the secrets of the universe in search of the ultimate truth. Brutally opposed by the Gnosis—a mysterious and hostile alien life form—the Federation works to expand humankind's reach throughout the universe... even by force where necessary. Based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s controversial theory of mankind’s "will to power," Xenosaga delivers a captivating message through its seamless story and character development. The stimulating graphics and attention to detail make Xenosaga the one role-playing game all gamers must own.

Dragon Valor – Second Opinion

I'm not necessarily against action games that are on the easy side, but the sheer monotony and repetitiveness of Dragon Valor makes it a wholly undesirable experience.
